Jan's soloalbum "Second wave" gets a re-release 20 years after it was released.

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

I've always had a fondness for this album.

To me, the rap sections add a lot of character and I welcome them with open arms.

I think most of the songs here are great, but "So Here I Go Again" is my absolute favorite. Jan just sounds absolutely amazing here.

As far as the remakes, I'm not a big fan of the idea in general. That was one of the initial drawbacks of Brian Wilson's Imagination, but I ended up liking "Keep An Eye On Summer" and, even more, "Somewhere Quiet" from No Pier Pressure  But, I like the additions that Jan added to the four here. The one drawback are those extremely harsh synths at the beginning of "Dead Man's Curve." I don't find the remakes essential, but certainly enjoyable.
